Sahi is a superbly run guesthouse. It provides the perfect combination of price, comfortability, and a friendly atmosphere to easily get full marks for this review. Located overlooking assi ghat, Sahi river view is basic but has everything a traveler could need. The free breakfast was basic but with the paid addition of coffee was a perfect way to save... More

The view from the balcony gives a panoramic overlook of the river of Ganges and the town. It's beautiful!The guesthouse is located at Assi ghat were the morning ceremonies are held. The breakfasts we had was memorable; the shy they served combined with the river view and the breeze was such a mindful moment. We can really recommend Sahi River... More

We went for a search of hotels around assi ghat after arriving Varanasi, sahi is the best conditioned one for cheap-middle hotels. They do boat and taxi only and claim no commission at all. I think the price was quite fare. Really hard to find you need to walk into a small alley then you'll find the hidden good.

The guest house is located at Assi ghat which is the place that many tourists and long term travelers prefer to stay while visiting Varanasi. The location of the guest house is very nice and one can see the river from the balcony. I stayed here for 4 days in December, and was given a room which was very neat... More

Clean bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms, and good food. The staff are always able to help and happy to suggest places to visit. I stayed 3 weeks and really enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. Sahi looks over Assi Ghat, which is lively during the day and quiet come nightfall. It is a short walk from everything by the river and provides a... More

A friend and I were recommended this place. On the plus side, it is very well located right on the ghat itself with a view of the river. It would be singularly pointless to visit Banaras/Varanasi and NOT be in sight of the Ganges! The rooms were large and there was a charming enclosed verandah right outside our rooms. The... More

Stayed here for three nights. It's located at Assi Ghat which is the quieter end of town but still easy to access everything you want to see in Varanassi. The guesthouse manager was always very friendly and helpful with advice and never pushy. He arranged a sunrise Ganges boat ride for 600Rs (300 each) which is a good price and... More

We spent 3 days at the recommendation of an Australian friend who is a regular visitor to Varanasi. It is small guest house and gives you a feeling of home stay. The rooms on top floor are the best while those on first floor offer Ganga view from the rooms. Shikha, their Bengali cook cooks great food of your choice... More

We came to Sahi River View Guesthouse in the middle of August and stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms wasn't much, but it was clean, quiet and had a breathtaking view from the balcony. The staff was very friendly and we haven't felt as safe in India, as we did at this hotel. It is located just beside the... More

This review is a 3 star in relative terms due to the fact that there isn't very much else available. However, the cleanliness of the room was not good at all with the water from the tap and shower smelling strongly of sewage possibly contributing to my brother me becoming ill. There is also a curfew at 10:30pm which we... More
